APFA Negotiators coming to all bases.

The APFA Negotiators will be visiting Base Operations around the system on Friday, March 20 and Monday, April 20 to answer your questions, hear your comments and dispel rumors. It is imperative that everyone is unified and has A Clear Vision of where we are with our mediated negotiations and understands our need to MOBILIZEtoMAXIMIZE. Click here for the schedule.

In an effort to reach as many Flight Attendants as possible, members of the APFA Negotiating Team will also visit the Crew Room at the LHR Forum Crew Room on Saturday, March 21 from 1700-2000 and on Sunday, March 22 from 0600-1100. If you are in LHR, please stop by to get the facts about Mediation and where we are in Negotiations.

PHONE TREE

As reported earlier, each InfoRep will be assigned 10-15 Members to contact. The lists are now complete and will be e-mailed to all InfoReps beginning this week. The e-mail will contain your Member List as well as instructions on how to collect and input the data received from your calls. Please let me know if you have any questions once you receive your information. The Phone Tree is probably the most valuable tool we have to communicate with the membership and has been used successfully during past negotiations. We thank everyone for their participation.
